. ♪ his truth is marching on >> reporter: and then all eyes on the president and chief justin john roberts, who flubbed his words four years ago, triggering a second swearing in. this time, the president's hand on two bibles, president lincoln's and dr. martin luther king's, and this time, it was the president who seemed to swallow a word. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> reporter: and then, the president's address, just shy of 19 minutes, with a theme of moving forward together. >> my fellow americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together. together. together. together. >> reporter: the first president ever to include gays in his inaugural, while talking about the struggle for civil rights. >> for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> reporter: the president insisting we address climate change, and on immigration, arguing we should welcome striving immigrants. >> until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our
administered by the chief justice john roberts, jr. the public swearing-in and all the pomp and circumstance that go with it were put off until today and what a day it is. the temperature right now is in the high 30s. the sky is clear, a brilliant winter's day in the nation's capital. people are pouring into the national mall to witness a day of history. the first family began the day by attending services at st. john's church. that's right across the street from the white house. that's a long-standing tradition for presidents on inauguration day. joining me now in our cbs coverage is bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of ""face the nation."" bob, what are you expecting to see? >> well, it's going to be an important day for the nation, but i must say, you know, the fiscal cliff negotiations, the slaughter of those children in connecticut made it difficult for washington to be festive this time around. it's also a very unusual atmosphere because of this gridlock. i mean, you're not hearing people talk about hope and renewal this time around, but is the government bro

at the british with words. write a letter to john adams and says, our duty as americans -- he creates the word meola jives and jefferson is creating all these words. he created ottoman for the footstool. jefferson was the coiner or introducer, the first one to actually bring them into the mainstream and the list is really sort of fascinating. pedicure is his world. mono crowd is his word. the one that he does the most weight and becomes the most egregious is the word belittled. he creates the word a little. he knows what he's up to and he knows he's creating something is going to be very disturbing. noah webster loves the word and one of his teachers at yale writes in a letter about the word. the british hate the word to the extent that one scholar comes out with modern english usage, the first edition, dollar is still attacking the word it creates a sort of disturbed approach to the british. one of webster's presets was that the american language be descriptive other than prescriptive. it would not be dictated by a single authority. it would be the language of the trapper and farmer and trade
of the white house. we want to welcome john mcconnell who spent eight years with president bush and vice president cheney. thank you for being with us. this is from the "washington examiner." then there is this from the "chicago tribune." the issues will be framed tomorrow at his inaugural address. what will we hear? >> no time to waste me anything -- makes me think of president clinton this is about continuity. his time in office is now half finished. he is more conscious than ever before of the passing of time. he is going to be emphatic about his great ambitions. i do not think this will be a very policy specifics speech. there is an aspiration a level, a bit of discrimination of what we have gone there as a country. this is a characterization of what we have been there as a country. a few of the great goals for the four years to come. not a lot of specifics. >> president obama has the luxury of one more day to prepare for his speech. typically every president is different. what is happening 24 hours before an inaugural speech? do you suspect the president has everything in place typi
adams was such a remarkable revolutionary leader, and so is his cousin, john. >> yes. >> could you tell us a bit about the different styles of leadership and their different approaches to the issues of the day, how they thought the movement should go forward towards independence? thanks. >> well, the truth is it was a little easier for john adams, because of what sam adams had done before him. and sam adams had been called by a number of people the actual father of the country because he was the chief spokesperson, and policymaker for the sons of liberty. the sons of liberty separate cells really of radical people, opposed to the british, certain, finally a revolution was necessary. that sprung up almost independently across the colonies in connecticut, in new york, in pennsylvania, in south carolina. and sam adams became the chief letter writer, the political strategist and stories told of a neighborhood walk by his house at 2:00 in the morning and he would see the light in the sands of study out there, and now that his pen was going to scribble -- trying to lead us towards independenc

[laughter] >> the president obama started the morning with a little prayer service, interface from all kinds of spiritual leaders, reverend lyons sat down with chris wallace in recent days and gave a little bit of a sermon and talked about how in recent days he thinks the president has been almost pastor in chief dealing with tragedies such as the one in newtown, connecticut. trying to bring communities together their and president has an opportunity today to try to bring the country together. there will be a luncheon with congressional leaders after the swearing in his. you will see that giant stand behind me that has bulletproof glass, the president and first lady will review the parade. we are told that the president attended school there, play basketball, it was interesting to note tha

"morning joe" starts right now. >> when i'm over here at the congressional picnic and folks are coming up and taking pictures with their family, i promise you, michelle and i are very nice to them, and we have a wonderful time, but it doesn't prevent them from going under the floor of the house and, you know, blasting me for being a big spending socialist. >> good morning, everyone. january 15th. it's raining out there. >> it's miserable. >> with us on set is msnbc contributor, mike barnicle. his outfit. >> what's up, mike? >> and former democratic congressman, harold ford junior. >> good morning. >> we'll do that later, alex. also, we have this obesity story, coca-cola making changes. i love that. >> they're putting more sugar in. >> no. do you know what they're doing? any know the story? >> yeah, i do. >> they're getting ready for the lawsuits? >> come on. helping america. coming up wi
john roberts. ed, this time went off without a hitch. >> reporter: four years a little bit of a hiccup when roberts couldn't quite remember the oath. he had tried to memorize it. this time he brought note cards. he got it right. the president was teased by one of his daughters about him getting it right, as well. this as you say was history. 16th president to win election to two consecutive terms and be sworn in. now, they have all the ceremonial swearings tomorrow. this more intimate friend in the blue room, family and close friends. amid all the constitutional moments there was also a light family moment where a dad got to talk to his daughter, take a listen. >> thank you sir. [ applause ] >> i did it. all right. thank you everybody. >> reporter: i did it, he said and sasha said you didn't mess up. vice president biden got to try this out first very early this morning. reason why it was so early is that just sotomayor had to get on to a train to go to new york city to sign her books. she was trying to get to barnes & noble this afternoon in new york city. >> gregg: you got to plug th
of this morning's "washington journal" on the second inauguration of president obama. john in new york, an independent. caller: the c-span coverage of the inauguration was quite excellent. i have a comment and a question to you know, social studies teachers teach the development of democracy in america. we have jacksonian democracy. then we have lincoln and reconstruction. we have the progress of era and the new deal, and more. is this the age of obama and democracy? host: what to do you think? caller: he talked about inclusion and diversity, but how subsidizing public housing has not been on the agenda at all -- there are a lot of minorities. i live in public housing and i am and minority. i live in harlem. we have been invited to washington to work and issues with public housing and what happened was, through obama, i have to confess, they tried to twist our arm. what happened is there is a demonstration that will be in a couple years. all subsidizing housing throughout the country, including section 8 in multi- family dwellings, and it gives the right of the fall -- a gives for-prof
means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. john bolden becoming secretary of state, the coke brothers up on the podium with donald trump, it is not tha
up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across the street from the white house. there's the first lady, and the president, sasha and malia, and the first lady's mom. luis leon is preaching on the theme of unity, which is also the president's theme. we'll see the president and first lady when they come out of that service, in just a little bit. first, let's talk to david muir. he's on the shadow of the steps of the capitol. and a lot of people gathering already. >> gathering here since the darkdar darkened hours before the sun came up. you talked about the choir of p.s. 22. you can see the capitol behind me, for those of you watching at home. the archway that the president will emerge from, about midway, at 11:30 this morning. his hand on the two bibles that george mentioned. applause for the children who traveled here all the way from new york. my producer, christine has the temp
in by chief justice john roberts who used notes to avoid the repeat of the slightly bungled oath four years ago. and last night, the president was at a candlelight ceremony at the museum and here is part of his remarks at that event. >> and we're committed to the basic notion that when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history, it moves. it moves. it moves forward. >> the inaugural parade is one of the highlights of today's events, but the biggest news maker, of course, will be the inaugural address. while the white house has not yet released any excerpts from the speech, a presidential advisor gave a few hints yesterday about what will be in that address. >> he's going to talk our political system doesn't require us to resolve all of our political dispute, but common ground and he's going to make that point strongly that people here in washington need to seek common ground. >> and white house officials say today's speech will hit some broad themes and the president will outline in more detail what he expects during his next four years, during the state of the union address, that will be
:45 eastern time when he attends a service at st. john's episcopal church. at 10:45 he begins his journey from the white house to the capitol. the ceremony itself kicks off at 11:30 with the president taking the oath of office at 11:55. his inaugural address begins at noon followed by a luncheon in the capitol around 1:00 p.m. and then everybody heads out again for the inaugural parade. that's at 2:30. >> we have correspondents all over washington covering all of today's events including the president's inaugural address. we go first to major garrett at the white house who has new information about that speech. major, good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah norah. president obama did not divulge much about that speech but in playful moment with the first lady he did confront a pressing issue that has been dominating the headlines. >> it is my distinct honor and pleasure to welcome the love of my life and our president for the next four years, barack obama. >> to address the most significant event of this weekend, i love her bangs. she looks good. she alw
. joining us now is congressman john larson, democrat of connecticut. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon, martin. >> mr. larson, i have been struck by your public comments since that terrible day in december. you said, and i'm quoting you, we have to act. we can't just stand and lower flags and ache with everybody. but in the last few days, we've heard that an assault weapons ban wouldn't make it through congress. the nra says reducing high capacity magazines would also fail. so what do you expect could be done to address the issue of gun violence in america? >> well, just because things appear to be hard, doesn't mean we shouldn't attempt to do them. and as you pointed out at the start of the show, martin, i think the american people have the memory of these children is permanently seared in everyone's memory, and the fierce urgency of now in taking action is upon this congress. that, of course, has caused the lobbies to act and repel against it, but it doesn't mean that we shouldn't continue to put forward common sense, practical legislation. mike thompson, who has been designated by n
john roberts. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states, so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> 3 activist groups have received permission to protest president obama along the route of the nrk parade. the anti-war group answers says it expects -- we will have more on the inauguration after headlines. alice four people have been killed in u.s. drone strike inside yemen. yemeni government says the attack of four militants but the claim has not been independently verified. the attack comes one day after those of anger of the drone attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism ad
that much appreciated and it's an honor to be introduced by my class late -- classmate john henry. john is the -- most of john's ancestors were prominent virginians during the period of the colonies but were mostly anti-crown so i asked asked john why is at it that patrick henry was the most outspoken? and his answer was incredibly -- richard it's because he was for. however poor he may have been patrick henry was a very rich warrior and one of his greatest features he said in the quote different and often see the same subject in different lights and therefore i hope it will not be disrespectful to those gentlemen if entertaining opinions of a character opposite to theirs and i shall speak forth my time is freely and without reserve. this is no time for ceremony. it's an awful moment for our country. patrick henry was addressing the repression of the american colonies by the british crown and tonight i wish to speak to a different kind of repression, the injustice of being held hostage by large financial institutions considered too big to fail or by the acronym tbt of. and unfair tax
also to john adams. i'm going to try to make it. [applause] .. this service or that service. when you come here and see what's possible for example we were able to cd enabled chip that could allow you to have 300 megabits per second of the data that would allow you to watch each dtv on a wireless device very easily. >>> author of numerous books on abraham lincoln recalls the four months between president lincoln's election and a number of 1860 to his inauguration in march, 1861. during this time the president was pressured by republicans and democrats throughout the country to maintain the union. it's a little over an hour. >> welcome to the virtual book signing here at the abraham lincoln bookshop as always. i'm daniel weinberg and i am pleased to have you here. it is a lincoln civil war book signing at work. it's a wonderful way for you to build a first edition signed library with all of the books coming out over the next few years in the lincoln bicentennial which is upon us but also the war that follows the heels there are so many books coming out and we are going to try to we
, the president surrounded only by his immediate family, chief justice john roberts, whose wife was there, as well as the press secretary, jay carney. but really a small number of individuals in that room as he was sworn in just a short time ago. inaugural planners are looking outside as we stand just in front of the reviewing stand, the exact place where the president and his family will watch the parade pass tomorrow, saying we could only wish this weather will stick around for the next 24 hours. but of course the real ceremonies take place for most americans that come here, as we have noted before, roughly 600,000 to 800,000 americans expected tomorrow, roughly a third of the nearly 2 million here four years ago. after all the ceremony and the pomp and the pageantry we return to governing. on "meet the press" we heard from david axelrod about some of the challenges the president will face. >> rebuilding the economy in which the american dream, the american compact is fresh where people who work hard feel like they can get ahead. that's not just about dealing with the fiscal crisis. it's about e
the speech. something we'll be discussing later with john lewis. it's an added emotional contact. >> absolutely. the civil rights movement created the possibility for barack obama to become president and i think he's ever mindful of that. i think that's where that community organizing comes in him. he knows that communities create the power. you think about the gay rights movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, this is all part of who he is and i think it's part of american history. when i look at american history, those movements are critical in transforming our attitudes about ourselves and about one another. and that's where real change takes place. lincoln said, you control public sentiment, controls everything. even if they can't control my voice. >> sometimes when historians try to speak too much in the course of one inaugural weekend, this is what happens. we're going to allow doris rest her voice for a second. you saw when we were talking a motorcade and you'd be forgiven for thinking there's the president on the move from the white house. it was not. f

[laughter] i mentioned earlier, i was friends with as a a berlin who wrote a great essay on tall store which influenced me hugely called hedgehog. the hedgehog has one big area. the fox has many ideas. i'm a fox. but as a fox we always love the other, and i'm in love with hedge talks. i only write about monsters and head towards. jesus is a bitch hag -- bighead charred. the only has one idea. we know what that was. tolstoy, he was the ultimate hedgehog. faust was i had charred. remember, i made a joke yesterday about when i wrote the novel about toast -- tolstoy a. please stop writing books about me? it seemed like a terrible joke. she was damned serious. i rea

. and they're in fact at this moment trying to make their own deal with people like john mccain for next to nothing from our point of view. you wouldn't see any of those four changes that we're pushing for. and i think he is reluctant unfortunately, to go ahead with the overwhelming majority of democrats that he has. he's got 51 democrats -- >> already? >> -- who will support senate resolution 4. and we need the american people to call in to senator reid and say,let's take a stand. let's bring democracy to the u.s. senate." >> the polls suggest that the majority of americans really want filibuster reform and want the talking filibuster back. >> right, overwhelming majority, you know, two thirds at least and in fact on the other side, like 7%, 8%, 9% say "oh, yeah, they should be able to phone in from their fundraiser," which is what they do, and say, "i object." and then you're in unanimous consent and now to get out of unanimous consent you need 60 votes to move forward. very few americans believe that's what they elected a senator to do. >> so a senator could be sitting somewhere off c
